Tracking Dark Pools with the Balance of Power Indicator
You can learn to identify setups for Swing Trading momentum runs by focusing on price trends and indicators that reveal Dark Pool Quiet Accumulation. TC2000 Users have a huge advantage over other Retail Traders. They have access to custom indicators designed specifically to track and reveal Dark Pool Quiet Accumulation and Professional Trader activity, which results in sudden price action momentum runs created by High Frequency Trading.
Above is a candlestick chart example of a Small Cap stock with 37 million outstanding shares. The smaller number of the outstanding shares, the more likely a liquidity draw by Dark Pools will trigger huge runs and gaps. Therefore, identifying the Dark Pool Quiet Accumulation is a key element to getting into the stock ahead of the High Frequency Trader HFT runs.
Worden’s Balance of Power indicator reveals the Quiet Accumulation mode by Dark Pools early in this bottoming formation. This is a crucial aspect of entering the stock ahead of the inevitable price action momentum run or one-day High Frequency Trader HFT gain or gap.
Momentum Trading can be more fun and less work when you employ the Balance of Power indicator written by Don Worden.
This indicator has become better at revealing Dark Pool Quiet Accumulation as the popularity of Alternative Trading Systems continues to increase. More and more Buy Side Institutions, including some Smaller Funds, are using Dark Pool venues more than ever before.
Also, the 5-cent spread for Small Caps is creating plenty of momentum activity for Small Cap stock trading.
